Studies of a proportional-integral implicit model-following control law are presented. The research focuses on the ability of the control law to recover the performance of a system with failed actuators or structural damage to its prefailure level. Properties of the implicit model-following strategy are examined, and conditions for control reconfiguration are stated. The control law is applied to the lateral-directional model of a fighter aircraft, and control restructuring is shown for changes in control and system matrices. It is concluded that the implicit model-following scheme is a good candidate for control reconfiguration.
